Surrey Independent Visitors Service

We are recruiting volunteers to befriend children in care. The volunteers take the children out once per month to take part in an activity such as pottery painting, cinema, or a meal out. We are looking for a minimum two year commitment and volunteers need to have access to a car. We will pay expenses, provide training and ongoing support.

We have children placed all over Surrey and so we need volunteers from every area of Surrey.
